New release of "Nobody's Child" under the MCA Label. Officially launched yesterday by none other than the President of MCA!!
I was slowly passing an orphan's home one day.
And stopped there for a moment just to watch the children play.
Alone a boy was standing and when I asked him why
he turned with eyes that could not see and he began to cry.
People come for children and take them for their own.
But they all seem to pass me by and I am left alone.
I know they'd like to take me but when they see I'm blind
they always take some other child and I am left behind.
(No) mother's arms to hold me or soothe me when I cry.
Sometimes it gets so lonely I wish that I could die.
I'd walk the streets of heaven where all the blind can see.
And just like all the other kids there'd be a home for me.
R E F R A I N :
I'm nobody's child
I'm nobody's child
Just like a flower I'm growing wild.
No mommy's kisses and no daddy's smile
nobody wants me
I'm nobody's child.
To-day you would be served an avalanche of news and comments on Anwar and the police report alleging sodomy. I will not add to this "information" overload.

Some sources were disappointed with the DAP in Penang, and alleged that there were 3-4 camps in KOMTAR now. Each with its own personal agenda to fulfill? It was the same cliche, "Apparently they have forgotten about the people who put them there!”.
My opinion is that under our present political culture (which is not much to shout about), I am not surprised the above is happening. Which political party or which government is 100% squeaky clean? Since we are “beggars” now, there is not much for us to choose. Jeff Ooi is a figure of contention in one of the forums which ran to 13 pages going no where and the admin decided to close the thread. The forumers were so disappointed and angry that a new thread was started call "Why Jeff Ooi's thread was closed?"
Right now I will just be contented to have a mongrel that can bark loud when strangers approach!

People sneered at me when I wrote that even the greatest dynasties in China could crumble, let alone a little group of loosely formed coalition party BN in a small country. Look at KMT in Taiwan; Marcos in Philippines, Sukarno in Indonesia, INC in India, and so many others.

Will we be hearing anything from Lim Chien Aun.

"Not again!" my grand daughter's favourite phrase picked up from Playhouse Disney Channel. The Penang Hill furnicular train, the Star reported, will be incapacitated for several months. Aiyoh! Pity the traders at Penang Hill. The newly renovated David Brown Restaurant will be hardest hit, and also the quaint and nostalgic Bellevue Hotel. Yes, Bellevue Hotel. It is nostalgic indeed. Bellevue Hotel was the original name, but in the 70's it was called simply the Penang Hill Hotel and I was the young manager overseeing the 12-room cum restaurant facilities. I used to occupy the front room of the "new" front annexe.

On Thursday, 27th June, Zimbabwe will hold a cruel sham of a vote for President. The opposition Movement for Democratic Change has just withdrawn from the run-off -- not in a concession of victory, but rather in recognition that Mugabe's campaign of violence and terror has erased any hope for a democratic election.But against the odds, hope survives. Amidst growing international pressure, Mugabe's ZANU-PF party and the opposition have entered private talks. A unity government may be possible yet.The United Nations Security Council unanimously held on Monday that free and fair elections are now impossible in Zimbabwe. The UN Secretary-General spoke out. But it is African leaders, most of all Thabo Mbeki, who hold the key. Even Mugabe cannot cling to power without their cooperation. Today, we're launching an emergency campaign, petitioning these leaders to call an immediate summit, isolate Mugabe, and broker a legitimate government for Zimbabwe. Our call will be published in big newspaper advertisements in South Africa, Tanzania, Angola, and Mozambique this week -- click here to see the ads and endorse their message:
When asked to comment, the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz said, “In Malaysia we don’t go to that extent. It’s ridiculous. They must be joking. Who is going to threaten them? Barisan doesn’t do that.”
Did you know that at least one politicians had committed murder for political reasons, found guilty with a death sentence, but was later pardoned? Who is joking? Are we going to be like Zimbabwe and its politicians?

To-day is Father's Day. So the ritual begins. Who's going to take Dad to breakfast, lunch and dinner? Many weeks ago after Mother's Day, I met a friend and his family together with his parents at a restaurant. He told me it was in lieu of Mother's Day for his two other siblings had "booked" his mother for dinners for the last two days. Lucky parents. I suppose he will have the same arrangement for Father's Day.

A very important message to everyone, please read it carefully.
1 Egg , & 2 Mobiles. 65 minutes of connection between mobiles.
We assembled something as per image :
Initiated the call between the two mobiles and allowed 65 minutes approximately.
During the first 15 minutes nothing happened; 25 minutes later the egg started getting hot; 45 minutes later the egg got hotter; and 65 minutes later the egg was cooked.
Conclusion: The immediate radiation of the mobiles has the potential to modify the proteins of the egg. Imagine what it can do with the proteins of your brains when you do long calls?
( POSTSCRIPT : It's a hoax! )

China has banned the use of plastic bags, including their manufacturing with effect from 1 June, after 20 years since their introduction. This is to protect the environment.
Can Malaysia do that? A big question. I am always in favour of government initiation whenever we need to cut down on pollution. We may say we all can do our part personally. Yes, if everyone does his/her part. But can we?? No way. I can do my part but it's a foregone conclusion. Unless it's going to be like the recent general elections where everyone does his/her bit (well, at least the majority).
I have given up trying to support recycling; simply because I can't find a convenient drop-off point. I used to unload my stuff at the recycling bins in front of the council building at the Esplanade. But now that I'm retired, I no longer go there. Talking about the bins. As you know there are always 3 bins for three separate types of trash. Anyone would assume that when they were collected , surely they would be placed into 3 separate compartments. To my horror, I saw those people in the small lorry, picked up the bins and simply emptied the loads into the lorry!!
No separation!! This is recycling, Malaysia Bolih Method. I won't be surprised if they were taken to the dump site and discarded as rubbish!!
It is just peasant mentality; 4th class mentality. And who is to blame?
You know at Tesco, they place the green bags for sale @ 90sen? I wonder how they are going to tell whether I've paid for them the next time I check out using the green bags. This is one of the reasons that I am hesitant to buy them.
Have a nice day!

I think this is too risky for me.
Definitely, not this.
This is more conventional. Maybe I may try this.
This looks too old fashion.
I think the above is the best bet.
